I saw #AmyWinehouse sing Love is a Losing Game at the Mercurys with just acoustic guitar - she was spellbinding- the voice of her generation

AmyWinehouse,genius and tragedy interwined.Our thoughts are with her family, friends. Will m illness and addiction ever be a NHS priority?

All those saying Amy Winehouse's death was her own fault can sod off out of my twitstream. You clearly don't understand addiction. At all.
